. this bill says companies have a right to outsource work to china, india, or wherever, even when they break the law when they do it. that is why this bill should be named the job out sorcerers bill of rights. republican intentions are clear. first they are coming for workers' rights, and then their jobs. today, in the american workplace, it is illegal to retaliate on workers exercising their rights under the laws of the country. these rights include the right to include and form a union, the right to strike, or even the right to sign a petition, asking for a raise or better safety equipment. but under this bill, these red become meaningless because there will be no effective remedy when jobs are outsourced and companies retaliate against those workers for exercising their right. no longer will there be a remedy for those workers. without an effective remedy, the republican's outsourcing bill of rights will make it easier to ship jobs overseas. it will also create a race to the bottom for american workers. workers will be exercise their rights less frequently. working conditions will all get
